    Working at decluttering stuff kept in the linen closet. Found the missing tablecloths and will put them where they belong. I went through the bed sheets and am only keeping 3 sets per bed. That is plenty in my book. Sorted towels and turned many into cleaning cloths. Have everything in baskets to go on the shelves for easy access.
    Just need to label them. I have curtains I am not currently using but still have rooms to re-decorate before I send them out the door. I believe one set will go into DS's room. Progress is being made. This weekend I need to get a lot done while I have the house to myself. Lots of woodwork and cabinets to paint. I am trying to keep myself motivated by telling myself that I will get a break and get to plan for the holidays once it is done. I also have new set of PW pots and pans to use once the kitchen is done.

    Cleaned computer desk top off and lots in the trash and found just alittle filing for 2017. We have really kept up on that this year!!! :) :) :)

    Getting ready to move the computer out to do some sanding so not sure when or where it will go and I will connect again. Maybe it will just be down while sanding.

    Doing a great job ladies. I have come to a standstill this week, just not enough hours in the day. Will get back into it soon and should have it all done before Christmas.

    Started washing the kitchen cabinets yesterday. Gave the juicer machine to ds to bring to the appartment where he lives with his girlfriend during the week + 6 cups + swizzle sticks (pretty but never used them). Got rid of about 10 plastic glasses too. Still have more to go through.
    I wish I'd find a new set of dishes... that way I could get rid of 2 old sets (need all the dishes during Christmas or one of them would already be out of here).
    I hesitate between regular white dishes or Corelle dishes. my mom & sis swear by Corelle (lighter)

    Got rid of 6 more cups yesterday and DS got rid of 6 t-shirts. I had my mixer and my chopper away at the bottom (far to reach) places - they are now in plain sight and now I have space for them :)

    Getting rid of one cheese grater (to DS) and 1 tupperware bowl (to dd). In the linen closet I'm getting rid of a blanket (will give to the homeless shelter this week) and 1 set of bed cover with pillow (single bed... dont have any more single beds in the house).
    Threw away a few empty yogourt pots I was keeping for nothing.
